Day 4


A day out at The Dub! Or raft building for those who don’t know that the Dub is a lake.  After a short coach journey, we all arrived ready for a full day’s activities off-site.  Raft building really tested our skills.  How could we create a raft to carry eleven people safely made only out of barrels, rope and wood?  Well we did!  Not only did the children manage to achieve this, Mrs Hutchings and Mrs O Halloran were also on board paddling furiously (don’t worry we were on separate rafts).

In between the water activities we also squeezed in quad biking and problem solving – on dry land!  The children really showed their determination to have a go at both of these activities – the first requiring individual skills while the second involved working as a team. 

Finally, what a great way to spend our last evening at PGL.  A traditional campfire with stories, songs and toasted marshmallows.  It was lovely to see everyone join in, especially with some very amusing actions.  We also enjoyed sharing a piece of birthday cake with Chloe who will be celebrating her birthday tomorrow.  Thank you Chloe and Happy Birthday!
